GENERAL NOTICES

UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD STAFF PENSION SCHEME

Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 July 2003

The Report and Accounts of the Scheme for the year ended 31 July 2003 has now been published. Copies may be obtained on application to the Secretary to the Trustees of the University of Oxford Staff Pension Scheme, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.


DATA PROTECTION ISSUES CONCERNING CALLING LINE IDENTITY

From the Telecommunications Manager

From Monday, 5 April, unless you request otherwise, people outside the university who receive telephone calls from your university extension will be able to see your individual DDI telephone number, by using a display phone or the 1471 BT service. This is known as your Calling Line Identity (CLI). Your CLI will be your full telephone number, so, for example, calls from the extension 88661, will be identified as coming from Oxford 288661, and not, as currently, a general number for the whole network.

This should be of general benefit because of the increasing use of CLI to identify the source of incoming calls and to screen unwanted calls, but it is recognised that there are some members of staff for whom release of their CLI could be inconvenient or inappropriate. You therefore have the right to request that your individual number is not transmitted as a CLI, in the same way that you can request to be ex-directory.

This can be done by asking your Telecommunications Co-ordinator (who is normally your administrator or bursar) to arrange for your extension to have Class of Service 24. All calls from your extension will thereafter be shown outside the university as having the CLI withheld. We regret that it is not possible at the moment to choose whether or not to suppress your CLI on individual calls.

Any concerns about this change in policy should be addressed to the Telecommunications Help Desk on extension 88888 (or e-mail: telecommunications@admin.ox.ac.uk).

Note: the above does not apply to student network telephones. CLI is withheld on calls from all 2xxxx student lines.

MUSEUM OF THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE

Appointment of Collections Manager

The Museum of the History of Science houses the world's finest collection of early (medieval, Renaissance and early modern) scientific instruments. The Museum recently reopened following major refurbishment with Lottery funding. The role of the Collections Manager is to assist with the care of this important collection.

The person appointed will be enthusiastic about museum work, passionate about preserving and recording the material record of the past, careful in handling rare and precious objects, and meticulous in record-keeping. This position would suit a recent graduate in a relevant discipline or someone with two years' experience of working with collections in a museum. The post will be on the technician grade D scale (salary £15,603--£18,495 per annum).

Further details may be obtained from Margaret Hauser, Administrator, Museum of the History of Science, Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3AZ (telephone: Oxford (2)77280, fax: (2)77288, e-mail: alicia.chiu@mhs.ox.ac.uk). The closing date for receipt of applications is Tuesday, 30 March.


GREEN COLLEGE

Joan and Richard Doll Clinical Tutorial Fellowships

Green College intends to appoint two Tutorial Research Fellows who will be responsible for the provision of additional clinical teaching to Oxford University medical students in their final three years who are members of the college. Appointment will be for two years initially and may be renewable for a further two years. The fellowships will be available as soon as possible after selection has taken place. They may be held in conjunction with another appointment which need not necessarily be a tenured clinical appointment. The college is looking for two clinicians who are actively involved in patient care in Oxford and possess an enthusiasm for working with medical students. Candidates from a wide range of backgrounds will be considered.

The Tutorial Fellowships are non-governing body fellowships which provide access to all college facilities, dining rights and an honorarium of £2,250 per annum. The purpose of the appointments is to strengthen the support and guidance the college provides for its clinical students, particularly in the form of bedside tutorials for first year students, regular evening seminars on a variety of medically-related topics and revision tutorials. The Tutorial Fellows will together work closely as a team with the governing body fellow who has special responsibility overall for medical education in the college, with the many clinical fellows who are already providing pastoral and academic support for the college's clinical students, and with the small group of clinically qualified teaching associates whose activities the Tutorial Fellow supervise and co-ordinate. It is anticipated that the Tutorial Fellows will commit about four to five hours per week on average to these responsibilities, though the loading in any one week is likely to be variable.

Application forms and further notes for applicants are available from the Warden's Secretary, Green College, Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6HG (telephone: Oxford (2)74775, e-mail: romola.coope@green.ox.ac.uk). They should be returned with a full curriculum vitae to the Warden, no later than 30 March.


PEMBROKE COLLEGE

Pembroke College employs two Junior Deans, starting in alternate years. The new Junior Dean will learn from and work with the current Junior Dean in their first year, assisting the Dean and other college officers in the smooth running of the college. Applicants must be graduates, and it is expected that they will be pursuing advanced study or research.

Applications, including a full curriculum vitae and an outline of the academic work which the applicant proposes to undertake, should reach the Academic Registrar, Pembroke College, Oxford OX1 1DW (e-mail: jackie.lewis@pmb.ox.ac.uk), from whom further particulars may be obtained, by Friday, 23 April.
